I currently live in Washington State. I have one child, a beautiful daughter named Kailey Elaina, born in December 2017. She keeps us busy!
I have 2 sisters and a brother. I was a Medical Assistant for 12 years, then became permanently disabled from a work injury in 2008. So i've had lots of free time to catch up on my genealogy LOL.
My fathers Boggioni line immigrated from Italy to the USA in the mid to late 1800's, early 1900's; and settled primarily in Columbus, Ohio. They later moved to San Diego, California. Some of my father's side of the family surnames are:
Boggioni (spelled various ways), Dibugno, Frassi, Reiselt, Hafey, Smith, Baker, Snider/Snyder, Milloway, Mahanes, Marquart, Jackson, Harrington, Walker, Smith, Sevier, Marsh, Curtice. Moeller, Henchman, Woodward, just to name a few.
My father told me stories when i was a child about our famous "Grail KIng" ancestors during the crusades.
My mothers side of the family is where most my Mayflower ancestors come from, although I also have some Mayflower ancestors on my fathers side as well. My maternal grandmother's family migrated to Plymouth, Massachusetts during the Puritan Great Migration; then to Utah where her family still resides. She is 3rd cousins with the famous Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church.
Some surnames on her side are:
Whitney, Ripley, Cushman, Bergin, Holman, Daniels, Taylor, Wood/Atwood, Olmsted/Olmstead, Newberry, Kimball, Hemingway, Sampson, Soule, Standish, Alden, Mullins, Bradford, White, Eaton, and Warren to name a few. A list below shows my relationship to a lot of the Mayflower passengers.
I have amazing royal lines on both sides of my family. Both my parents lines intersect a few times way up in my tree creating duplicate relationships. I have Plantagenet royalty on both sides as well.
I have always had a curiosity about where my family started from. I have uncovered amazing discoveries along the way. I never knew how time consuming genealogy was until i started researching my family. I keep looking forward to finding new cousins and family members i have never met.
